The Irish composer, Field, married from a somewhat
peculiar reason, if we may believe his version of it.
While yet this originator of the style of music called the "
nocturne " was single, he numbered among his pupils
one attractive young lady from whom he found it exceedingly
difficult to collect the amount of her tuition
bill.
Finally, Field concluded to proceed to law in the matter,
that is, to use one form of law for he proposed to
the slow-paying damsel and was accepted. He made
no secret of the fact that she was his pupil and he married
her to get rid of giving her lessons for which she
never paid, and for which he felt sure she never would.
This may be a good plan. Who can say but it is
applied more than the world knows. But what if the
teacher is already the happy possessor of one, or if he
has several debtors among the fair sex ?
